Suncorp’s Melbourne Cup celebrations kicked off for another year when Addington Raceway Silks lounge was transformed into an elegant VIP racing experience. Guests were greeted to a champagne wall upon arrival. Instead of rolling out the red carpet, a green ‘in theme’ astroturf carpet was laid out, leading into the main space with a blossom tree archway framing the doorway. Guests managed to get the all-important snaps of their outfits in front of our photo area and custom banner backdrop. White silk draped above the ceiling, with greenery clusters of palm leaves, topiary balls and hints of gold and silver palms adding to the roof décor. An internally lit stage was set for music performances with a large LED screen as the backdrop and centre point within the room, to watch the all-important race. A Pimm’s and Gin bar was created with our herring bone wooden bar, paired with our new herring bone backdrop for its debut. Shelving on the wall displayed the gin range and pimm’s bottles with our floral displays at either ends. Floral centrepieces with gold horse shoes were placed on glowing bar leaners. Gold buttoned ottoman seating and white chesterfield couches allowed guests to sit and relax for more comfy seating options.
